Rovell wants to make it sound like the Tiger bet guy was broke…then how’d he get that $85,000 to bet Tiger? Yeah, he had stock money to burn
A stock trader by day, Adducci said the wager was the first he ever placed. He said he needed to “move some investments around” to free up money for the bet. He first tried a couple of other sports books, he said, but was turned away.
“When I said how much I was looking to bet (at the other sports books), it was kind of laughable. I just wanted to do what I wanted to do,” he said.
With his big win in tow, Adducci said he’s talked to William Hill officials about possibly placing a bet on Woods to win golf’s grand slam — wins at The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship — this year. Exceptionally rare, William Hill, as of Monday afternoon, was offering 125-to-1 odds for Woods to complete the grand slam.
